I was offered a job as an RN. Corrections is definitely a specialty that peaks my interest. This thread is a folllow-up on a number of others I've made regarding corrections perceived as a profession within nursing. I have decided that corrections would provide me with a work environment that would satisfy my interest in public health as well as emergency medicine (triage, autonomy, quick responder).
THE QUESTIONS OF THE CENTURY!....*drum roll*
What is the likelihood of me achieving permanency while working for CDCR, specifically at the Ironwood/Chuchwalla facilities?
Anyone work at these facilities know a few things and would like to chime in?
Anyone ever hired on as limited term and lives to tell their story of becoming permanent?
The reason I'm wrestling with this is because I have another offer to go to Midland Texas for an ED residency and 2 year commitment. The pay is significantly lower and I'd rather stay in California for tangible and intangible reasons.
